Alice in Wonderland inspired

Yesterday I was at the movies and watched Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton. I loved it! The colors were so nice and inspiring. The mad hatters tea party got me in the mood to create a scene with miniature things I had at hand. Tables and chairs. Books and nick knacks. I also got the opportunity to display some of my teapots. After all this is a tea party and wouldn't be completed without it. If you like to make your own teapots and need some guidance I have several tutorials on my YouTube channel. If you know me I am also happy to show some of my baked goods. The mad hatter, Alice and the animals are not present. I my mind they just haven't arrived yet or who knows maybe they just left;) Have you seen the movie and did you like it?

Christel you clever clever lady you! Have you seen my blog, this is a scene i would like to create but WOW you have beaten me to it, and you have created the most beautiful, fun scene and so quickly! I wished I had teapots and cakes and things to hand so I could make one now but I will take my time collecting new things, which will be fun! AND I will definatly go to your tutorials on teapot making to help me out! Just love it well done you! Happy Easter Kate xx

What a great idea and a lovely little scene - I like the chair that's been knocked over, as if someone has just rushed away.

What a wonderful scene Christel! I love the lace and all the pretty chairs you used. If I look at the upset chair, I think they all left in a hurry... what a pity because the cakes look so appetizing and they haven't even tasted it!

Susanna said...

Such a delightful scene you've created! I can just see the crew arriving for tea...

I loved the movie and have plans to create this scene myself :)

Puppenstubennostalgie said...

Ohhh Christel.... die Tafel ist wunderschön arrangiert und lädt ein, sich dazu zu setzen.

Ich war auch schon in dem Film und fand ihn wirklich bezaubernd... auch wenn es ja eigentlich ein Kindermärchen sein sollte.

Aber Erwachsene können doch auch träumen, oder....??? lol.....

Simply stunning, Christel!!! I love the way you laid everything out on the long table and it all looks so sumptuous! Truly, a fantasy meal!!

GryNoKa said...

Hei Christel!
Whipping får du tak i, på Coop o mange andre matbutikker. Datteren min tåler ikke valig fløte, så da er dette et godt alternativ.
Ha ei fin helg.
